High Performance Storage Software Logical Architecture

In addition, StorMax 200Gb/s storage systems deliver low-latency distributed block storage for web-scale applications, enabling shared NVMe across any network and supports any local or distributed file system. These StorMax® solutions feature an intelligent management layer that abstracts underlying hardware with CPU offload, creates logical volumes with redundancy, and provides centralized, intelligent management and monitoring. All applications benefit from the ultra-low latency, extremely high throughput and high IOPs of a local NVMe device with the convenience of centralized storage while avoiding proprietary hardware lock-in and reducing the overall TCO.

The Demand For More Throughput – 200G HDR InfiniBand Solution

As the demand for data analysis grows, so too does the demand for higher data throughput to enable such detailed analysis. Whereas state-of-the -art applications to analyze automotive construction or weather simulations required 100Gb/s as recently as a few years ago, today’s high performance, machine leaning, storage and hyperscale technologies demand even faster networks. 100Gb/s bandwidth is not enough for many of today’s more advanced data centers.

Whether for brain mapping or for homeland security, the most demanding supercomputers and data center applications need to produce astounding achievements in remarkable turnaround times. Thus the race is on to develop 200Gb/s technologies that can support the requirements of today’s most advanced networks.

High throughput and low latency to train deep neural networks and to improve recognition and classification accuracy

The StorMax® series features Mellanox ConnectX-6 with Virtual Protocol Interconnect® offering two ports of 200Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity, sub-600 nanosecond latency, and 215 million messages per second. Mellanox ConnectX-6 cards bring crucial innovation to network security by providing block-level encryption; off-loaded by the ConnectX-6 hardware, improving latency and saving precious CPU cycles.

In-Network Computing and Security Offloads

ConnectX-6 and Quantum support the new generation of the data center architecture –  the data-centric architecture, in which the network becomes a distributed processor. By adding additional accelerators, ConnectX-6 and Quantum enable In-Network Computing and In-Network Memory capabilities, offloading even further computation to the network, which saves CPU cycles and increases the efficiency of the network.
